Days ahead of their expected launch and seemingly before official review embargoes lift, one lucky customer has already gotten their hands on the brand new 12.9-inch M1 iPad Pro.

Posted on Reddit, u/PeterDragon50 has already received their 12.9-inch ?iPad Pro? through retailer Nebraska Furniture Mart. The Reddit user says they placed their order when pre-orders initially went live and that the retail chain informed them that their iPad was ready for pick-up, despite not yet having been officially launched from Apple. Apple says the new ?iPad Pro? and ?M1? iMac will be available starting in the second half of May, most likely May 21.

Official reviews of the M1-powered ?iPad Pro? have yet to be published, leaving many to ask the customer for first impressions and thoughts. The customer says that the new mini-LED, Liquid Retina XDR display is impressive with deep blacks and colors that are “definitely up to Apple quality.” Two videos (second one) were shared showing the 12.9-inch ?iPad Pro? playing back HDR content.

Alongside images and videos of the new ?iPad Pro?, Antutu benchmarking scores were also posted, showing that the new ?iPad Pro? performs significantly faster than last year’s model. Geekbench scores posted earlier this week also found the new ?iPad? is 50% faster than the previous-generation.

Some customers who placed their pre-orders for the new ?iPad Pro? on April 30 are beginning to notice their order status switch to “Shipping” rather than “Preparing to Ship.” The new ?iPad Pro? has proven to be an early success, with estimated shipping dates already slipping into mid-July.
